in swiss bank accounts, listen to that and remember when you hear the plethora of senators who will come to the floor and say that not one penny of foreign aid should ever be cut ever. not one penny of aid they argue, should have conditioned placed on it. the amendment that i will offer today places conditions on foreign aid. but it places conditions that have to pass the senate. not that can be rubber stamped by hillary clinton. hillary clinton thinks human rights are going fine in egypt. she rubber stamped and said give them a billion. a couple of months ago. no human rights abuses in egypt. she also approved an extra billion for pakistan a month ago. we can't rely on the purse strings to be transferred particularly to this administration but even to any administration republican or democrat. the purse strings are to remain were intended to remain and the constitution says, are to remain in the legislature. this is a real problem. so my legislation makes it come back and we have to vote on it here that they are in compliance. that there are no human rights violations that egypt is not

-- >> senator, i can assure you the scooter store is not prefilling paperwork. we don't fill out any paperwork. because there is not an objective standard system that's been created for a complex, as testified by the good doctor from illinois, this is a complicated exam with complicated criteria. most doctors do this one to three times a year. if there was a process set up by cms or the carriers that allowed everyone to work off the same playbook, it would be easier for the doctors to do the exams and provide the information that they need so what happens is a lot of paperwork comes back, and when we look at it, it's not that the patient doesn't need it, but that the doctor didn't document appropriately. that's been said throughout the whole panel and what ms. taylor testified for. we go back to the doctor and say, look, you didn't document this enough. go back and either re-document, but we're not filling out the paperwork or writing what the doctor says. if his nurse writes something, and he signs it, it doesn't have to be in his handwriting. if he signs and dates it himself, then he's attes

if not all of our foreign aid and cooperation with pakistan on his status and on his release. i hope senator paul and those who support his amendment will consider at a minimum restructuring that amendment to recognize that there's a difference between libya and egypt, and we should take different approaches in that regard. we have a right to be trainld, we have a right to be angry, but we should never abandon being smart. i yield the floor. a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from north carolina is recognized. mrs. hagan: i ask unanimous consent i be permitted to speak up to 1015 minutes as if in morning business. the presiding officer: without objection, so ordered. mrs. hagan: mr. president, 11 years have now passed since the attacks of september 11, that horrific day that forever changed the world. although we have killed osama bin laden, the fight against the al qaeda militants is not over. al qaeda remains a threat to america, and the brave men and women of our armed services are still fighting every day to protect our way of life. mr. president, i want us to h
obama is heroic and american. >> let's compare senator mccain to candidate mccain. candidate mccain criticizes senator mccain's own climate change bill. candidate mccain says he would vote against the immigration bill that senator mccain wrote. >> yes! that's the stuff! who is this? who is this fast-talking, concise person? senator kerry. i wonder how senator kerry would fare against 2004 candidate kerry? >> it's one thing to be certain, but you can be certain and be wrong. it's another to be certain and be right or be certain and be moving in the right direction, or be certain about a principle and then learn new facts and take those new facts and put them to use in order to change and get your policy right.

states senate. mr. cardin: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from maryland. mr. cardin: i want to thank senator gillibrand for bringing this moment to the attention of the united states senate and the american people and thank senator rubio, senator durbin for being here. it's hard to believe it's been 40 years. it's hard to believe it's been 40 years since that tragic event in which terrorists had the attention of the world in the olympics at munich. and it's hard to believe over the last 40 years we've experienced so much of the violence from extremists and terrorists, tomorrow we will commemorate the 11th anniversary of the attack on our own country, and we recognize that the only way that we can stand up to this type of extremism is to never forthe get. -- forget and dere-dedicate ourselves to do everything we can to root out extremists, to root out terrorists and to never forget the consequences of their actions. so i want thank senator gillibrand and senator rubio for the resolution that we passed in this congress, to let those who were victimized 40 years ago to kno

was doing it before and it ultimately comes down to him saying, she shouldn't be a senator because she's native american. >> how do you think she handled the answer? i thought it was terrific. >> i mean, i think she has the moral high ground on this. if i were her, i would show more outrage. i think what she explained is sort of incontrovertible but he's trying to make it an issue. i find it remarkable. i don't understand why it's sort of not more of a scandal. >> from the clips i saw, she showed tremendous poise tonight. this was her first real debate on the big stage at this level in politics. rachel, thanks. >> thank, man. appreciate it. thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. i will confess to being slightly more allergic to reporting on new polls than the average person who works in cable news. generally i think that polls are made to seem more important than they are, most days. in terms of predictive value for elections that are sometimes really far away. right? far away in time. but at this point in the election, when we are less than 50 days out and the pl

. overall spending is set for fiscal 13 at $1.37 trillion. well, the senate would have been marking that up to $10.47. we would have been automatically in disagreement with all of the bills. but we have gone ahead and passed through the committee bills, and seven of them on the floor of the house. in the meantime, the senate was saying, we were not going to youzhny of -- use any of those bills, so we had no one to negotiate with. so consequently, we came to the point where we had to pass something to keep the government open after september 30 fiscal year end, thus the c.r. >> was there an intention to change the number on the b.c.a.? my understanding was we were ready to move ahead with the b.c.a. number and it might have been passed. >> it would have been easier, i will say that. the democrats in the house, likewise, were committed to the $10.47 trillion number, so it made package in the house more difficult to go with the lower number. and it is conceiveable that if we had been able to pass our bill at $10.47, it would have made conferencing with the senate a lot easier. however, the sen

for president. these are not swing states. republican senator lindsey graham told reporters of mitt romney today, "he's a great guy, he should win this election, but being in utah is necessary to raise money, but he doesn't have to be there, in my view." senator graham continued, "i think what romney needs to do is get into virginia and run for sheriff. this is not rocket science." real clear politics covered mr. romney's mysteriously light schedule yesterday. they quoted a well-connected republican fund-raiser saying, "there's not really a campaign here. he's getting ready for the debates and he's out fund-raising. you've got enough money." real clear politics also notes that in the 19 days following the conclusion of the republican convention, mr. romney spent only 9 of those 19 days, less than half of those days, in battleground states. over the last seven days, mr. romney's public events included just two rallies, during the same time frame, he sustaineded seven private fund-raisers and had two days that had no events scheduled at all. their crisis management plan for dealing with the campai

. the senate recently passed a bill which includes a number of sanctions. it a full scale clean audit is achieved by september 2017, in 1 sanction requires essentially the moving of jurisdiction from defense, the defense finance and accounting service, to the treasury. i wanted to get your perspective on that, ttp that you avoid that, or if he did get to that point, what's your perspective be on the transfer of that from defense to treasury? >> well, i think that transfer would be a bad idea. i think the goal of senator coburn has and his cosponsors, oversight role for me, as a to provide oversight over defense, will have the opposite effect. it will increase the workload i believe because company, they are a day to day accounting for. we need them working for the department of defense. let me step back and comment on the pentagon act just brief and more broadly. we support the goals in that act. to get to audit readiness, you've heard us all say that. and we think we have a system of accountability. we are concerned about a number of sanctions that are in there. you mentioned one. th
in my hometown of nashville. it's a true story. my father was defeated for his fourth term in the senate in 1970, because he was opposed to the vietnam war and supported the voting rights act and opposed mandated prayer in school and so fort. soon afterwards, he got involved with a progressive group and he met young joe biden when joe was just 28, 29 years old in june of 1971. he was a county councilman in delaware, and was thinking about running for the senate. my father and mother encouraged him to run raised fully one third of all of his campaign budget, which was not a lot back in those days, $89,000 for a $290,000 total budget, and he won by 3,000 votes. and joe has told me that story personally quite a few times and when he always enjoyably. he came and spoke in nashville several times in the last four years. on one occasion, he told the whole audience that story and i guess that's what the newspaper this morning was recounting. >> two things that are amazing your dad having been in the fat for 18 years having lost because he took such wonderfully important progressive positions. t
